I have never signed up for an extra warranty or a maintenance idea for any of the appliances that I have bought over the years.
But I do understand why some people subscribe to so several of them.
But there are times when those maintenance plans are just a waste of money, plus they are mostly used by some businesses as section of their sales tactics, however for example, our dad just bought a microwave for about $200, plus the salesperson was trying to talk him into buying an extended warranty. Fortunately, our dad turned it down because he knows that an extended warranty on a up-to-date microwave just doesn’t make sense. Why? Because it already comes with a a single-year guarantee which is perfectly good for a microwave. However, he just signed up for an Heating plus Air Conditioning maintenance agreement because his Heating plus Air Conditioning unit is about 17 years old. The unit is still working efficiently, but eventually it will begin to decline because of its age. The maintenance maintenance agreement is a good way to offset some of the high repair costs, however and if the unit begins to malfunction more frequently, the parts will be discounted per the agreement. Additionally, the agreement will give Heating plus Air Conditioning maintenance plus tune-up twice per year. This additional maintenance will help to extend the life of the Heating plus Air Conditioning unit, so it is for sure worth the money. I don’t have an Heating plus Air Conditioning maintenance agreement because our unit is under 10 years old. Though in about 5 or so years, I will consider signing up for a maintenance agreement. Anything that I can do to extend the life of our heating plus cooling idea is worth the money to me.
